ALG announces Canadian Residual Value Awards

Generally speaking you want a car that has a high residual value. Why you ask? Well, if you lease your vehicle it means that your lease payments will be lower since the car is worth more at the end of the lease term. If you purchase your vehicle it means it’ll be worth more when it comes time to sell it. According to Geoff Helby of ALG, "Residual value is a complete indicator of value, taking into account quality, durability and brand desirability."

Cars having high residual value are greater demand in the market. Customers like to buy such vehicle because of lower rate of depreciation. Quality, durability, and brand desirability are three important factors which are taken into account at the time of fixing residual value of the car. Car manufacturers should give importance on such factors at the time of manufacturing of a vehicle to win the heart of customers. Really Canadian residual value awards would inspire manufactures to build best cars for customers.
